As a clinically effective app that offers 24/7 support for mental health and wellbeing, Thrive helps with the early detection, prevention and management of common disorders such as anxiety and depression, as well as building resilience so that users can feel empowered to improve their mental health.

It tackles common stressors such as sleep, bereavement, work issues and more via the use of evidence-based therapies such as CBT, meditation, deep muscle relaxation, breathing exercises and distraction games. A mood metre and diary tracks daily fluctuations of mood and records what specific stressors the individual might be facing on a daily basis, thus becoming more personalised to the user over time.

The app uses official GAD7 and PHQ9 questionnaires to screen for anxiety and depression and uses the results to prescribe the appropriate help.

There are a range of benefits that come with using the app, most importantly it improves overall wellbeing for users both inside and outside of work by building personal awareness and allowing them to nurture their own mental health. This can lead to a culture which normalises mental health, enabling people to feel more comfortable about discussing their own needs as well as being open to the advice they need for finding the right support.   

Simon Jay, Thrive’s Commercial Director, said:

“We’re really proud to be supporting the team at Music Support. We’ve been aware of the fantastic work they’ve been doing for a while, and it’s our pleasure to be able to offer additional support to the charity and the people they come in to contact with. Hopefully, Thrive will be a welcome addition to many in the music industry who need this sort of confidential, but proactive and preventative mental health support.”
